"Daily Talks by Mary Pickford" was a syndicated newspaper column published on weekdays between 1915-1917.
The "author" was supposedly silent film star Mary Pickford, and the column of January 25, 1916 titled "My Disappointment" strongly denied rumors that she did not write the columns herself. But other sources have indicated the column's ghostwriters included Francis Marion and Izola Forrester.
Columns concluded with the "Answers to Correspondents" section, in which questions from the readers were answered; that section was easily shortened to fit available newspaper space, and some newspapers omitted that entire portion of the column.
The material here was gathered from several different sources. Newspapers would sometimes omit or delay publication of columns. The final months of the column were carried by fewer papers, so some of the final columns are missing, or are lacking the "Answers to Correspondents" section.
